CD Reviews

From Lake Geneva to the Montreal station?
12/15/1998
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Well, what should I say? I guess this record has just 'historical' value, because it contains the earliest versions of WEG the boys had done with Bobby O. The original mix is interesting, obviously, as well as the acid house mix. But the James Brown mix and Montreal mixes seems to me as total crap and just a few people would be able to listen this CD from start to end."

"A couple mixes (the Monreal ones) are okay. The cd was recorded VERY badly. The volume level of each song is dramatically different and needs to be adjusted for each song you listen to. There is also a distinct muted quality - songs sound muffled and lack any warmth, fullness or richness. Bobby O was involved in these mixes (He really knows what he's doing and is responcible for lots of great stuff)so I think that the majority of the problem is not the mixes themselves but with quality control of XYZ records. Re-released stuff like this by small companies with unknown audio recording equipment can be a crap shoot but its often the only way to obtain these mixes. Just getting a bad cd is very very unusual and since a cd is an exact copy I'd be leery of ordering. I did turn them into mp3s and was able to dramatically improve their sound and level out the volume. You could do this or save money - get a used copy."
Keep expectations low

"This is just a warning. This is not the actual original single for West End Girls and it is not even released by Pet Shop Boys record label. Although the mixes are decent for their time, their novelty soon wears thin. The sound quality is shotty, as other reviewers have noted. I consider myself to be a true fan of PSB and try to collect as much as I can get my hands on. But this release comes off as unauthentic and weak. A "MUST HAVE" for only those that are TRULY die-hard fans of PSB.
Fyi: If you are a fan of the song itself, a very decent remix by SASHA was officially released as a B-side track on the single for "I wouldn't normally do this kind of thing." This same mix is later included on the limited edition of POPART, the collected singles of the Pet Shop Boys that was released last year. This latter has a better sound quality simply because it was released over a decade later.
I would sooner recommend these CD's than the one you are currently looking at."
